I have VNC on my XP machine. Have tried SSH but honestly don't understand. What I want to do is log in to Ubuntu from my XP machine even if there is noone logged in to Ubuntu. Works if I have logged in to Ubuntu, but if I log out of Ubuntu then cannot log in remotely.

Putty also works from the XP machine.

Do you want command prompt or GUI?

I think I may have figured out that the Windows Remote desktop ap cannot do it.

I would really like to be able to use it so that I only have one method of doing remote, but it's not compatable. (I think)!!
